2nd Hand Budget Gaming PC: Warframe at 1080p

I put together a PC from parts I bought second hand, from eBay, Amazon Warehouse and a friend. The total cost of the PC was just over 300 pounds, it's similar to the one I made a while back and tested with the R9 280X, but now I put it in my living room for me to play Warframe (and a couple of other games) on my sofa with a controller. It does that job just fine. In this video the PC has the following spec:

  • Ryzen 3 1200 Quad-core at 3.7 GHz all-core (Overclocked)

  • Gigabyte AB350M-D3V mATX

  • 2x4GB 2400 MHz CL17

  • Sapphire Radeon R9 380X Nitro

  • WD Green 240GB M.2 SATA SSD

  • EVGA Bronze 500W PSU

  • Fractal Design Core 1000 USB3.0

I have actually put my reference R9 290X in this PC, since I wanted to use it for a bit, and it's a bit more powerful than the 380X. It's also louder. Oh, and hotter. A lot hotter.
